New York, NY (PRWEB) October 5, 2010
Less than one year following the initial launch of The PT Project, founders and organizers of the innovative industry-wide effort are pleased to announce the launch of an updated and improved website. The new website, located at http://theptproject.com, was enhanced to meet increasing demand world-wide, making the site easier to use and to navigate through for specific information.
The PT Project was launched in late 2009 by co-founders Adam Banks and Luke Bongiorno, managers of the forward-thinking physical therapy practice in midtown Manhattan, New York Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy. The PT Project was conceptualized as a way for physical therapists throughout the industry and throughout the world to work together to educate each other, help each other and further the profession of physical therapy as a whole. Since the launch of this innovative project, interest has spread quickly and swiftly and the website is now accessed by physical therapy professionals in over 100 countries worldwide.
The rapid increase in interest and usage of The PT Project’s website across the globe has prompted co-founders Banks and Bongiorno to re-launch a new and improved website for readers to enjoy. The site is sleeker, easier to use, and easier to navigate, allowing PT professionals to find just what they are looking for in a streamlined format. Whether readers of the site are looking for the latest information related to a specific topic or want to see the most recent entry by their favorite contributor, the new PT Project website allows them to do so with ease.
“Response to The PT Project has been overwhelming”, explains Adam Banks, co-creator of the project and CEO of NY Sports Med. “When we first launched the site, we knew that giving PT professionals world-wide access to information, research and advice from leaders within their field would be well received. It was an innovative idea and one that was designed to strengthen the whole profession as a whole. What Luke and I didn’t realize at the time, however, was what a huge impact this concept would have on the profession. In less than one year, the site already has readers in over 100 countries, and we are continually adding new contributors, expanding the amount of information being shared.”
The PT Project is a free resource for the physical therapy community, with a mission dedicated to elevating the educational standards of the profession, promoting excellence in practice, and embracing the highest professional ethics and standards. The project is also committed to advancing research and educating the public to further enhance the future of the profession. The new website is separated into categories related to clinical practice, practice management, and after PT. There are sections geared to students, patients, and international professionals, and readers can even enjoy a ‘tip of the week’ section for fresh ideas.
“We developed The PT Project with specific goals in mind,” explains Banks, “to share information, to promote education, and to build professionalism within the field of physical therapy. Our belief is that when leaders in the field are willing to share what they know and what they’ve learned with others, the entire field as a whole is elevated. That was what we initially set out to do with The PT Project, and the past year has shown us that PT professionals across the globe appreciate the easy access we have provided for obtaining valuable information - and they keep coming back looking for more.”
The PT Project’s mission is to promote and expand the ethical practice of physical therapy through the sharing of practical knowledge, research, news and advice. The project was conceptualized and developed by the management of New York Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy, a leading provider of physical therapy services in metropolitan New York, as an independent and free resource to be utilized worldwide for the advancement of the entire field of physical therapy.
